Make your master piece!​
— Jungle Inferno announcement, Day 2

War Paint is an item type that was added in the Jungle Inferno Update to replace campaign weapon drops and weapon cases, and was first showcased on ​Day 2 of the update. When one of nearly forty patterns is selected from a War Paint Case, it can be previewed on a weapon and applied to create a new unique weapon with the selected pattern. War Paint and War Painted weapons have the Decorated quality, but can also be obtained in Strange or Unusual qualities. Paints and cases can be purchased using Blood Money from the Mercenary Park Gift Shop.

Loadout Menu

This is an Airwolf War Paint Knife, Battle Scarred, in the War Paint Section of the Loadout Menu.

War Paints and past Reskins of all types can be applied to any compatible weapons within the Loadout Menu. These cannot be given at the user's discretion but can be bought if available on the Community Market. War Paints can be randomized as to generate pattern variations or can be manually selected. This Loadout for War Paints resembles the Loadout Menu choice used to select a War Paint for a weapon when redeeming a War Paint.
